Women and Social Movements in Modern Empires Since 1820 (Trial)

Trial ends 31st March 2019.
Catalogue record, available from: Women and Social Movements in Modern Empires Since 1820.

Women and Social Movements in Modern Empires Since 1820–a supplement to Women and Social Movements, International–explores prominent themes in world history since 1820: conquest, colonization, settlement, resistance, and post-coloniality, as told through women’s voices.
Seen through women’s eyes, the history of modern empires opens dramatic new perspectives on global patterns that have shaped our world. Women’s voices can be found at all levels of imperial history. As the agents of empire, women were active as missionaries, educators, healthcare professionals, and women’s rights advocates. As the opponents of empire, women were active in nationalist and resistance and reform movements and as conservators of culture.

With a clear focus on bringing the voices of the colonized to the forefront, this archive and database includes documents related to the Habsburg Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the British, French, Italian, Dutch, Russian, Japanese, and United States empires, and settler societies in the United States, New Zealand, and Australia.

A large, innovative section focuses on the voices of Native Women in North America.

Early European Books – new platform

Early European Books has moved to the powerful, award-winning ProQuest platform. Check out ProQuest’s user-friendly interface, a brand-new data visualization tool, and the ability to cross-search Early European Books with your other ProQuest content.

Catalogue record, available from: Early European Books.

Early European Books traces the history of printing in Europe from its origins through to the close of the seventeenth century, offering full-colour, high-resolution facsimile images of rare and hard-to-access printed sources. Early European Books has within its scope all works printed in Europe before 1701, regardless of language, together with all pre-1701 works in European languages printed further afield. It builds upon and complements Early English Books Online (EEBO) and is largely concerned with non-Anglophone materials.

The Library has access to Collections 1-10. Building on the success of Early English Books Online (EEBO), ProQuest has embarked on a European-wide project which will trace the history of printing in Europe from its origins (circa 1450s) to 1700. The Early European Books resource is set to encompass all European printed material from the early modern period. The contents are drawn from major repositories including the Danish Royal Library, the National Central Library in Florence, the National Library of France, the National Library of the Netherlands, and the Wellcome Library in London.

Early European Books allows unlimited access to thousands of pre-1701 books and rare incunabula printed in Europe. It embraces the two-and-a-half centuries following Gutenberg’s invention of movable type in the mid-15th century, which witnessed an unprecedented proliferation and dissemination of literature throughout Europe. In keeping with the tenor of the time, religious works dominate, but there is no shortage of secular material concerning every field of human thought and activity.

Drawing from a diverse array of primary sources in their original languages, this acclaimed series opens the door to in-depth scholarship that was once limited to fragile manuscripts housed in far-flung institutions.
